When deciding on what to intend it is important to focus on what you WANT, not on what you DON'T WANT. This is a common mistake that people make. Whatever we give our attention to, we are attracting. If we are focused on NOT being broke, we are giving our attention to the state which we don't want - being broke. If we are focused on NOT wanting to be fat anymore, we are giving our intention to the experience we don't want - being overweight. When we do this, we are attracting more of what we don't want in our lives. This is because we attract more of what we give our attention to. We should instead be focusing on what we DO want and attracting from this positive, proactive standpoint.
